    NEW YORK — Former NYPD officer Jorge Arbaje-Diaz was sentenced to 20 years in jail for robbing drug dealers. Arbaje-Dia claimed he turned to robbing drug dealers to make mortgage payments on his new house.

    The New York Daily News reports:

    Defense lawyer Priya Chaudhry tried to win sympathy for his client in sentencing papers that, in part, blamed the pay that city cops take home.

    “Jorge was shocked to see that this house his family loved quickly became something he could not afford on his NYPD salary,” she wrote. “There seemed no way out until one day the Devil appeared on his shoulder in a barbershop.”
